Advantages of Artificial Surfaces

When installing a new sporting facility, there can often be a debate – artifical surfaces vs. natural surfaces. SSL specialises in artificial surfaces, and we wanted to share with you the advantages of going down the ‘artificial’ route for your new surface:

  • Flexibility of usage
  • Better overall value for money
  • Defined performance characteristics
  • Greater durability
  • More efficient use of space
  • Increased usage

Along with the above benefits, artificial surfaces also require less maintenance than natural growing grass would. Artificial pitches are not completely maintenance free (which is sometimes the expectation). For example, an artificial surface pitch can incur the same annual maintenance cost as a natural grass pitch, but an artificial pitch would withstand substantially more usage.
